Hey Linda, can you tell us more about Brooke's Place? Where is it, why you think it's the best, etc. Thanks!

We're relocating to the area and trying to determine this very thing, but there really aren't any resources out there. Would be great to hear from other parents in the Huntington Woods/Berkley area as to good day care options!

Huntington Woods Christian Preschool. They have a wonderful, caring staff. They keep the children engaged with weekly themes, and projects within the theme. It has a long standing, quality reputation within the community .

We liked Tyndall, which is part of Berkley schools. When my daughter was there, they taught Everyday Math (which continues through her elementary school), and even Chinese! The staff was wonderful. Now, she is in 3rd grade, but we still have fond memories of her time there, and she can still count pretty far in Mandarin!

All three of my children attended Berkley Building Blocks and now attend Norup. I believe that the excellent teaching and care they received at both Tyndall and Avery has helped them continue to have a great education experience in Berkley.

We'd like to nominate Berkley Building Blocks (Tyndall & Avery) for the best child care/preschool in the Huntington Woods-Berkley area! BBB is a part of the Berkley School District, which has its eductational advantages. BBB offers serveral programs such as infant/toddler daycare, preschool and head start just to name a few. They can also accommidate full and part-time schedules during the school year (10 months) or year round (12 months), which can be a plus if you need a unique weekly schedule or for teachers who only need care during the school year. The staff and administration has always been so wonderful and caring to our kids. Our daughter has been attending since she was 6 weeks old and this will be in her 2nd year of preschool in the fall - she just loves it!! Not to mention, she has alreay built relationships with many children that will attend the same elementary school.

Our Lady of La Salette Pre-school! La Salette offers complete flexible scheduling for parents including half and full days, they are fully licensed and accredited, and have an experienced staff educating in a christ-centered environment. For over 60 years, parents in our community haven chosen La Salette.

We like Berkley School District, especially the Berkley Building Blocks programs at Avery & Tyndall. We also enjoy the Enrichment Programs. We have three Children, all who have come through, or are going through the program now. The staff truely cares for the students, they help to open their minds to news ways to approach life and learning, they give them new ways to handle problems, and open doors to meet new friends. Our oldest child is at Norup now, but all fall he would go their to see his teachers and they would ask, " how he was doing and what was going on". It made him feel proud to see his sister there and continued that special connection with the school. My daughter was just promoted from there, she will atttend Norup in the Fall, but, she ask everyday if she can go back, because she loved learning, going to the gym, and the field trips. My youngest son loved his three teachers, they spent quality time with him, they made him feel welcomed, even though he came mid semester he felt like he started in the fall. They showed him new ways to approach learning. The summer programs they offer have been awesome too, we just did swimming and now they are all better swimmers. I could go on forever, but I will stop with saying, the staff truely wants the best for your children, they treat them as if they were their own, and the relationship you build last even after you leave.

All four of my children attended Mon Ami Preschool. Although it's located on the lower level of St John Church in Royal Oak (on the corner of 11 Mile and Woodward), it is owned by Huntington Woods long time resident, Carolyn Rondot. Mon Ami is simply not a preschool, it becomes your extended family. There are generations of Mon Ami grads! We always knew our children were safe and in an educational and fun enviornment.

My son went to Huntington Woods Christian Preschool and we really liked it there - nice staff and interactive program. My son is now 11 and still gets excited when he sees the director out in public. Huntington Woods Library used to (and maybe still does?) hold a preschool night every year where you can familiarize yourself with the local preschools.
